"Afterwards there were drinks and refreshments followed by one of Elliott Eastwick's legendary pop quizzes at Bar Centro on Tib Street. Cerysmatic's team featuring Larry Gott out of James, Ed "I've got no chicken but I've got five wooden chairs" Barton and Sarah Champion eventually won on a tie-breaker [* "He only played guitar in the Smiths for eight months - who is he?"] with splendid prizes being dished out all round. OK, it did help that the bonus round was "Name all of the albums by James"!"

Edward Barton / Mr Thompson + Very special guests
DJs: Xander (Phush/Flux/Redlight) and The Anonymous Ex (Dreams That Money Can Buy/TVOD)
A surreal extravaganza of punk-pop and poetic rock'n'roll. After his acclaimed performances at this year's In The City and Liverpool Biennial, the avant-garde neo-dandy Robin Nature-Bold & Band(ism) are to set to break into heavenly delights with their idiosyncratic psychedelic punk-folk. "They're like a cross between Billy Childish & Rolf Harris" claims Flux Magazine Editor Lee Taylor, other claims include, "Robin Nature-Bold is the love child of Peter Sellers, Andy Warhol and Andy Kauffman". After his recent controversial gig at Salford's Kings Arms, Ed Barton returns to complete a much-inspired set of eclectic electric beats, squeaks and bleeps, accompanied with vocal patter to blind and bewilder. Heralding from the Stoke-on-Trent region, Mr Thompson has become synonymous with vocal effects and a range that would have Mongolian throat-singers' toes curling with envy. The infamous DJ Xander cuts up on the decks with a dusty collection of vinyl he discovered at the bottom of the Dead Sea whilst on a Scuba diving holiday, and the Anonymous Ex plays a rare breed of vinyl that will blind upon viewing.
